#SWIMP20: Improv from the other sight (workshop)
About the worskhop
We taste and enrich our lives with all of the senses. And so we do play improv. And that's wonderful.
But, what if our perception changed and we would stop using one of our senses? Would our other senses become sharpened? Would we feel more, hear better, express more through physicality, sounds and our emotions? How would our scenes change? Would they become full of new means of expression? Would we be more watchful and responsive to our partner's messages? This workshop is an experiment using the experience of not seeing things and awakening other senses.
The idea of this workshop grew out of the experience of working at improv with blind and visually
impaired people. Taking part in the workshop will give you an opportunity to gain new ideas on how to
work with people who cannot see.
